Once again, China steps up to help Lebanon fight the coronavirus spread while its own country is battling the worst since the onset of this outbreak.
On Thursday afternoon, Chinese Ambassador to Lebanon, Wang Kejian, posted on his personal social pages that two human temperature measuring equipment has been deployed in Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.
The screening equipment is a donation from Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co. to confront the new Coronavirus. The Ambassador added that this equipment takes the passengers’ temperatures without contact.
“We will continue to do our best to prevent and control the epidemic in our country, and China is confident in its capacity to defeat the epidemic very soon,” the ambassador said during his meeting with President Michel Aoun in Beirut, according to Xinhua media.
Ambassador Wang noted that there is constructive cooperation between Lebanon and China to contain this disease, through daily consultations between the Chinese Embassy in Beirut and the Lebanese Ministry of Health.
Despite fighting their own fierce battle against COVID-19, the Chinese didn’t hesitate in donating earlier hundreds of medical supplies to Lebanon.
Lebanese citizens are being urged to take all the precautions needed to overcome the hazardous situation and take this matter seriously yet without panic.
As stated this week by Canada’s Chief Health Officer, the people have also a responsibility in this fight, and they must do their part “to keep each other safe.”
